The effects of COVID-19 on children in Wales - A study funded by the Welsh Government

In response to concerns about COVID-19 for the health and well-being of Wales, the Welsh Government released a Sêr Cymru COVID-19 response grant, funding a study conducted by Swansea University. The specific objectives of this study are as follows:

• to determine the current physical activity levels and mental health and wellbeing of children and young people in Wales;

• to track whether/how these parameters change as we progress through the phases of the pandemic;

• to identify factors that underpin any changes, and that mediate, both positively and negatively, pathways between physical activity and mental health and wellbeing; and

• to provide guidance on what strategies are needed, and where, to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on physical activity, mental health and wellbeing, among children and young people in Wales.

The results from the study will provide government with important information on how to deal with the effects of COVID19 in children going forward.

This study is for pupils in Y4,Y5,Y6. If you would like your child to take part, follow the link.
